The main goal of the presented research is to analyze the specifics of impaired pragmatic language level in individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), emphasize the need for its timely diagnosis and accentuate the systematic stimulation of social communication skills. The contribution also deals with the issue of non-verbal communication and auditory agnosia in individuals with ASD and their consequences in terms of their effects within speech and language therapy approach and special educational treatment.

It concerns, in particular, auditory agnosia perceived by up to 90 % of the speech and language therapists as a factor having a significant influence on its course and results. The given experts also referred to the absence of any material focused on stimulating pragmatic language level, despite the fact that the presented results show that 14.4 % of the speech and language therapists perceive as the most important and remarkable difficulties at phonetic phonologic language level and consider them the represent the primary deficits. The consequences affecting the educational and therapeutical approach in temrs of special need education and speech and language therapy treatment are discussed.
